The Values on the Unit Circle…

I can’t take credit for this one, but it’s a great idea if you’re still working on the Unit Circle. Our students have been struggling with the idea of the values going back around, so he had a brilliant idea.

In keeping with my Slope Dance tradition, my resident made up this song, to the tune of “The Wheels on the Bus”

 

The Unit Circle Values go round and round,

round and round, round and round.

The Unit Circle Values go round and round, every 360.

 

And Sine and Cosine repeat and repeat,

repeat and repeat, repeat and repeat.

And Sine and Cosine repeat and repeat, every 2p.

 

And then we made up dance moves. The first verse is just circling your hand around in front of you. The second verse you go up and down like a sine curve. It’s good times.

Do you make up songs and dances? Do your students like them? Do they make fun of them and then do them to prepare for tests and at school functions like the Dance Marathon? (The girls who won totally slope danced!)
